Gulliver's Ship

Gulliver's Ship allows you to get sweets and 'souvenirs' in exchange for trading materials. Generally, the more you export with Gulliver, the more points you receive which can get you better souvenirs. In order to obtain new villagers through Gulliver, you used to get them randomly. This has been changed to finding villager maps which allow you to play a mini game, rolling a dice with more materials until you eventually unlock the new villager.

The catch? The villager maps are amongst the souviners you receive and are not always guarranteed, in order to get additional souveniers you have to pay using leaf tickets or wait a long period of time and try again which is also not guarranteed. This essentially puts new villagers behind a pay wall.

Players turned to Isabelle UK's official twitter page to complain about the recent update, resulting in every new tweet being flooded with complaints and hate towards the game creators:
